Fort Mill has been home to the Zimmerman family for four decades. Over the years, we have developed a passion for delicacies with fresh ingredients from sweet breakfast entrees to savory lunch and dinner options.

Though established in 2015, the recipes at Z Bakery run three generations deep. At Z, you will find nothing but friendly and heartwarming service. The fresh-baked pastries vary daily, but the classic tastes are here to stay.
